我校英语教学以“固基础、加技能、好素质”为原则,全面巩固学生初中基础知识,激活学生英语学习的信心,培养学生的国际化视野。预备以趣味教育为主线激发学生学习英语的兴趣和热情;初一以拓展教育为主线,锻炼启动学生的综合语言运用能力;初二以赏识教育为主线,增强英语学习技能,逐步具有自主学习能力和良好的个性品格;初三以人文素养教育为主线,培养对社会对他人的责任感和为学生终身学习和发展打下良好的基础。在今年的科普英语比赛中,我校有27位个人选手和4组团体选手入围了普陀区的复赛。我们将用六期专题来报道这些科创小明星们的科学之创与科学之思。













Today, our topic is Artificial Intelligence! 

Now we are heading into an era where we’ll be increasingly interfacing with AI. While science fiction often portrays artificial intelligence as robots with human-like characteristics, AI can encompass anything from Baidu’s search algorithms to IBM’s Watson to autonomous weapons.AI is already here. It’s all around us. 

Since it was first proposed in 1956, artificial intelligence has been one of the most controversial domainsin computer science. Defined as the part of computer science concerned with designing systems that exhibit the characteristics associated with human intelligence—understanding language, learning, reasoning, solving problems, and so on, the field has attracted researchers because of its ambitious goals and enormous underlying intellectual challenges.New uses and applications of AI are developed every day, bringing us closer to an unparalleled future,a future that we could’ve never imagined. 

Image recognition is the process of identifying and detecting an object or feature in a digital image or video, and AI is increasingly being stacked on top of this technology to great effect.Image recognition technology canbe used to detect objects, analyze clients and their opinions and verify users based on their face. 

With learning all these things, we can create something ourselves. Then, we’ll talk about our ideas about automatically-controlled flame out gas burners which combines AI with our own lives. We can also call it the ‘kitchen protector’. First think about these questions. Have your grandparents forgotten to turn off the fire before leaving home? Will your parents check the gas burner again and again even though they’re at home? For many families, there’re old people whose memories are getting worse. So, remember to check it becomes an important chain. Here comes our little idea especially for old or forgetful people, a kitchen protector. It may be a good problem solver. 

The automatically-controlled flame out gas burner has an infrared monitor which can recognize whether there’s a person in the kitchen with the help of image recognition, which we have introduced before.When there’s no people, the monitor will tell the commander of the whole process and start to time.There’s a smart ring and an app link with it.If there’s no people for a long time,10 minutes, for example, the ring will give an alarm,so as on the app. Then the elders will know the situation immediately. They can turn off it online. Invented especially for old people,they just need to click a bottom on the twice to turn it off. It’s easy for them and they don’t need to worry about touching it by accident.It was not long before it stops the fire in case caught a fire by itself.But if someone goes back to kitchen, the alarm will stop immediately.Furthermore,there’s a button to control the interval time, we can set up the length of time whatever you like. 

Though it’s not difficult to do so, it may really help a lot. With the technology of AI, it can talk to us too. If you want some soup, just tell it. It’ll choose time to remind you.

Some people may worry whether robots controlled by AI will take the place of human, just as some films show. But we believe not. Because robots will never have emotions. But humans will always work together, work for better life. 

Last but not the least, cherish today, and try to be better. The kitchen protector is just a small invention which can bring AI to our life. If we can use it efficiently and appropriately, we believe our future will be colorful with AI.
